New Bad Boy of Tollywood: Sumanth’s next to project him in grey shades

New Bad Boy of Tollywood: Sumanth’s next to project him in grey shades

Actor Sumanth, the nephew of Akkineni Nagarjuna, and grandson of the late Akkineni Nageswara Rao, who was last seen in  bold drama ‘Naruda Donaruda’, the much-hyped Telugu remake of Hindi hit Vicky Donor didn't live up to expectations at the box office. Now he is coming up with ‘Malli Raava’.Recently the actor has wrapped up the entire shoot of the film. Directed by debutant Gowtam Tinnanuri,  actress Aakanksha Singh is playing the love interest of  Sumanth in this flick.   Currently  the film is in post production stage. Recently during the media interaction, Sumanth opened up about his character in Malli Raava and said,  "When the director narrated  the script to me, I was immensely excited. It has a non-linear narration with three time zones spanning 20 years, all running parallely. I am playing  Karthik, a boy-next-door kind of character and an underachiever of sorts. Malli Raava is the most natural love story I've done since Godavari.” The actor added, he  has  signed three more films, including a thriller for which he will start shoot from October.Playing negative roles in films is nothing new for our actors. Always keen to experiment and show their versatility to their fans, Tollywood’s actors  have not just been the ‘good and romantic’ types, but have also taken up the challenge to showcase their darker side. They don’t hesitate for shedding their “good” image.  Now Satyam actor Sumanth has shifted his focus towards his next project. As revealed by himself, his new film is going to be a thriller, in which he will be seen portraying the ‘lead with grey shades’.  This news is confirmed by Sumanth  himself as he took to twitter and wrote, “Done with #MalliRaava, & moving onto the next, which will be a thriller, where I'll be playing lead with grey shades, just what I wanted.”Though his film choices are differing from each other in terms of subjects and genres, his failure-streak in bagging success at the ticket-counters is continuing. It’s interesting to see how Sumanth’s upcoming films work at the Box office.Related LinksNaruda Donaruda Movie Review| Tollywood News - Tollywoodrana's no 1 yaari with chaitu-sumanth
